EMEA and CIHEAM are pleased to invite you to follow the side-event "Agroforestry sector in the Euro-Mediterranean: Towards novel policies, cooperation and financing frameworks"
Date and Time: 9th December 2023, 14:00-15:30 GST/11:00-12:30 CET
Location: Mediterranean Coalition Office, Blue Zone and online
With the growing ambition of the European Green Deal and the regional development agendas to overcome current challenges related to climate change, environmental degradation and food security, policy initiatives and sustainable practices are needed to transform the Euro-Mediterranean region into a more integrated, resource-efficient and competitive economy. Agroforestry, as a multifunctional system, could be at the centre of this transition given its potential environmental, economic and social benefits. There is a need today for a policy framework that links food systems, agriculture, forestry and rural development for a holistic approach to environmental, economic and social sustainability and to overcome the most critical barriers to agroforestry adoption in the Euro-Mediterranean region. This session will present the latest developments and knowledge on these issues, supported by new tools and approaches. It will also make it possible to present the priority levers to be activated allowing strengthened Mediterranean cooperation in these areas.
Co-organizers: Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association (EMEA) and the International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM)
